Philip Kohlmeier (He/His)
Philip is a behavioral biologist interested in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate behavior and in answering how natural selection favored their emergence. For this, he applies an interdisciplinary skill set that ranges from RNA-sequencing and neurogenetics to behavioral experiments and phylogenetic modelling.
Bloo Mitchell (They/Them)
Bloo completed an undergraduate degree in biology with a concentration in environmental sciences at Dalton State College. There they used macroinvertebrate communities to assess water quality in the Conasauga River watershed and now work on the mechanisms and evolution of maternal effects in flies.
